My apologies for harshness on a Sunday, but I can't let this pass without comment. There were some sublime moments during Friday night's gig when Alan and his guitar were conjuring swells of sound straight out of Lake Superior. He is one of most unique voices and players of our time. 

Unfortunately, those moments were marred by latecomers standing six feet away with their backs to the stage, yacking at top volume. I get it, you're  "over it" regarding the Low thing and just came out cause you knew other locals would be home for the holiday. But would it kill you to take your conversation to the back of the room or out to the patio so that those us still interested in seeing a major artist in an intimate setting could enjoy the performance?

We were one of the many who gave up halfway through after Alan got tired of fighting the chatter and gave in to the banter. Ultimately it forced one of the great guitarist to stop playing guitar start jabbering too.

Again, sorry for the downer but I felt it had to be said.

Those lummoxes were bros on a bro tour. They herded in for one drink then left for the next (Grandma's) stop.
